    DR. MARTY MAKARY
    Johns Hopkins University
    Dr. Makary's op-ed in the Wall Street Journal today offers optimism and hope for those suffering under the covid-19 lockdowns. His opinion is that we are nearing herd immunity should be in a "normal" place by April, despite public announcements from elected officials to the contrary. So, why aren't we hearing this from public policy professionals? Makary explains the politics behind it all. 

    REP. ANDY HARRIS
    Maryland Congressman
    Rep. Harris, also a medical doctor, offers his opinion on the two-dose versus one-dose vaccination policies and explains why he has asked Maryland Governor Larry Hogan to prioritize the one-dose vaccine for the widest reach policy in the state. Harris also comments on the ongoing military presence in Washington DC and calls on Speaker Pelosi to reveal the information she claims to have of an imminent threat that justifies the current use of the national guard.
